A beautiful job....would love to know how you modified your pitch trim (parts list, etc.

I too, will have stick hat switches; but to have pre-selected setting for take-off, cruise...not to shabby🍈⚡️

Dennis,

Are you interesting in selling a set of your fairings.

Very nice Dennis.

Is there a possibility to buy your fairings. Could you make some and if yes, how much would they cost? I am particulary interested in the VS/Tailcone and Wings/Fuselage fairings.
Thank you !!

How I make the wing fairings:




We put the wings to the fusselage and make the form whit modelling compound. http://shop1.r-g.de/item/310100I

Than we wax it 5 times whit Priming wax http://shop1.r-g.de/item/165115
After that 1 layer of PVA Film release agent PVA http://shop1.r-g.de/item/165110
Then we put 10 layer of glas tape 225 gr on it whit epoxy Glass fabric tape 225 g/m? (Silane, plain) 100 mm http://shop1.r-g.de/item/200145


After 24 hours, the epoxy is hard and we finished the fairing



Now there is a fairing whit the exact shape of the wing and fuselage.

Dennis,

Wow, that's some really amazing high-quality work!

I'm curious: when you mentioned that your RV-12 is really fast, what sort of speeds are you seeing?

Looks Nice,Dennis!
My flightbuddy and me are planning to build a 12 ourselves - do you mind we come and have a peek, these days?
Love to use your friends fairings, as well?

Please contact me on Hans.labruyere [at] gmail.com?

Greets & many happy landings!
